This is defined as a chemical that transfers heat. The home air conditioning system uses either R-22 or R-410a. It is important to note that the federal government halted the production of units that contain R-22 on January 1st, 2010. This is due to the fact that R-22 has chlorofluorocarbons that when released into the atmosphere, deplete the ozone layer. The newer R-410a does not deplete the ozone layer and is the only refrigerant used in new systems.
Pure Air is very environmentally conscious and reclaims and recycles all refrigerant from replacements and service repairs, and have holding tanks on site.
